  1. I would like to share with you a message that I posted on the Matomo forum for which I am not expecting a satisfactory reply. I suspect that Matomo will be unwilling to entertain the idea for fear of opening a Pandora's box of insecurity for casual users and thereby endangering its reputation as a secure web utility. Matomo's fear need not be my own, however, with the proper guidance. BACKGROUND: After several weeks of enormous frustration I was finally able to access the Matomo web application directly with PHP. I was able to achieve this somewhat (for me) monumental task by renaming the .htaccess file (see below) in the /matomo/config folder and thus canceling its prohibitive effect. Obviously, this file was placed in the /matomo/config folder as a matter of security -- security, mind you, that I do not wish to compromise. This said, an unending series of HTTP requests uses up an enormous number of resources, and I wish to share the data that I collect about my users with my users via my own custom-built PHP files for which I require direct communication with the Matomo application. (I have no desire to play the governmental game of protect-and-deceive -- read GDPR or NSA). So, I explored the internet and found alternative contents <https://www.slicewise.net/php/piwik-absichern/> to the current .htaccess file in use by Matomo as of 3.5.1. REQUEST: Would anyone like to comment on the merging of these two files (see below) into a workable arrangement that would give me the superuser direct access to the Matomo web-application via PHP, but deny access to everyone else except through those channels already set in place by Matomo for anonymous users and opt-in/out visitors. PROPOSED FILE <Files "*"> AuthUserFile /path/to/piwik.htpasswd AuthName Piwik-Password AuthType Basic <RequireAny> Require valid-user Require ip 127.0.0.1 <your-server-ip> #needed for some scripts </RequireAny> </Files> <Files ~ "^piwik\.(js|php)|robots\.txt|idxsec\.php|favicon\.ico$"> Require all granted </Files> CURRENT FILE <Files "*"> <IfModule mod_version.c> <IfVersion < 2.4> Order Deny,Allow Deny from All </IfVersion> <IfVersion >= 2.4> Require all denied </IfVersion> </IfModule> <IfModule !mod_version.c> <IfModule !mod_authz_core.c> Order Deny,Allow Deny from All </IfModule> <IfModule mod_authz_core.c> Require all denied </IfModule> </IfModule> </Files> My goal is to give my visitors an important glimpse into the reality of data collection and analysis. I now know that I am able to do this my eliminating the .htaccess file. Elimination of the file is, however, not my goal. Roddy
  2. BACKGROUND: I am querying a MySQL database with a Matomo GUI. The API is called imageGraph. The call to the API works, as I have produced the desired image by assigning the URL as the value of an href attribute of an HTML <a> element. When using this link to display the image the image appears on a new page with its own header. This is not the effect that I desire. My goal is to display the image within a <div> tag on a webpage. The code that is suppose to achieve this latter effect is provided below. The URL that fetches the data from the API is identical for both the link and the PHP processing page for the AJAX call provided below. The PHP (./practice.php) $url ='https://.../matomo/index.php ?module=API &method=ImageGraph.get &idSite=1 &apiModule=Referrers &apiAction=getReferrerType &token_auth= ... &period=day &date=2018-04-10,2018-05-09'; $curl_request = curl_init(); curl_setopt($curl_request, CURLOPT_URL, $url); curl_exec($curl_request); curl_close($curl_request); The HTML <div id='referral_types'> <img src='' alt='Line Chart of Referral Types' /> </div> The Javascript $(document).ready(function() { $.ajax({ method: 'GET', url: "./practice.php", cache: false, contentType: 'image/png', success: function(response) { console.log(response); var graphic_src = response; $('#referral_types').find('img').attr('src', graphic_src); } }); }); EXPERIMENTATION: The console indicates that practice.php has been read, as it is filled with the kind of character nonsense typical of an image file. As the API permits an optional &format parameter I experimented with several including the following: AJAX PHP dataType JSON, &format=json dataType XML &format=xml (omit) &format=original The result was invariably the same. The ALT message with no image. Please advise. Roddy
  3. Please find below the Javascript insertion <script> tag that Matomo uses to track user behavior on a webpage. <!-- Matomo --> <script type="text/javascript"> var _paq = _paq || []; _paq.push(['trackPageView']); _paq.push(['enableLinkTracking']); (function() { var u="//{$PIWIK_URL}/"; _paq.push(['setTrackerUrl', u+'piwik.php']); _paq.push(['setSiteId', {$IDSITE}]); var d=document, g=d.createElement('script'), s=d.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; g.type='text/javascript'; g.async=true; g.defer=true; g.src=u+'piwik.js'; s.parentNode.insertBefore(g,s); })(); </script> <!-- End Matomo Code --> I would like to clarify the meaning of the final line of the above function -- namely, g.type='text/javascript'; g.async=true; g.defer=true; g.src=u+'piwik.js'; s.parentNode.insertBefore(g,s); QUESTION ONE: Can the script attributes async and defer work indepedently of each another? What is the purpose of each and does their role change when they are imlpemented together? QUESTION TWO: Given the statement s=d.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; does the statement s.parentNode.insertBefore(g,s); read: "Find the parent node of s and prepend g before s where s is the first node of all script nodes within the document including the node containing this function"?

    Understanding Matomo

    Although by no means fully recovered from a recent machine failure, I am back on the road in a much weakened condition. Please consider the following piece of code and correct me where my interpretation of the code is in error. <!-- Matomo --> <script type="text/javascript"> var _paq = _paq || []; _paq.push(['trackPageView']); _paq.push(['enableLinkTracking']); (function() { var u="//{$PIWIK_URL}/"; _paq.push(['setTrackerUrl', u+'piwik.php']); _paq.push(['setSiteId', {$IDSITE}]); var d=document, g=d.createElement('script'), s=d.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; g.type='text/javascript'; g.async=true; g.defer=true; g.src=u+'piwik.js'; s.parentNode.insertBefore(g,s); })(); </script> <!-- End Matomo Code --> My interpretation of same var _paq = _paq || []; _paq is an array that is initialized as empty or some preassigned value. _paq.push(['trackPageView']); Add a new element to _paq whose key-value pair is 'trackPageView' : undefined var u="//{$PIWIK_URL}/"; Create a variable called called u and assign to it the following string "// + some.domain.name + /". _paq.push(['setTrackerUrl', u+'piwik.php']); Add a new element to _paq whose key-value pair is 'setTrackerUrl' and u + piwik.php, respectively. var d=document, g=d.createElement('script'),s=d.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; Create three variables named d, g and s whose values are d: the DOM document g: the name of a newly created element called 'script' s: an empty index array called 'script' g.type='text/javascript'; g.async=true; g.defer=true; g.src=u+'piwik.js'; s.parentNode.insertBefore(g,s); The resulting script tag should appear as follows: <script text='javascript' async='true' defer='true' src= 'u + piwik.js'></script> function()(); Run the function upon loading the document in which it is contained.
